There are many reasons to get new windows in your home. The first thing you’ll notice is the aesthetic change that new windows bring to a home. Warmth, richness, and architectural impact are what you see first. The increased luminosity can help bring spaces alive, in addition to increasing your home’s energy efficiency. But looks aside, what are some other signs that you might need window replacement?
Poor insulation. If you have single-pane glass, or frames and sashes that conduct heat, you’ll want to consider replacing your windows. Cheap, poorly performing windows can have a negative long-term effect on your pocketbook.
Poor condition. If your windows are in poor condition, you run the risk of water leaks, humidity issues, and even insect and animal infestation problems. Don’t ignore cracked windowpanes. Also pay attention to rotting frames, non-operational windows, and other signs of excessive wear. Any of these are signs that you should consider replacing your windows.
Safety issues. You need your windows to open and shut properly. If they don’t, or if the windows are loose in their frames, you should consult a windows installation professional. Hopefully you’ll need to use your windows as an emergency exit. But before that ever happens, you need to make sure that all of your windows work as they should.
